1. Application – 18/03146/FUL:Erection of 42 retirement living apartments (Category II Type) with communal facilities, landscaping and car parking.  Erection of a Class A1 Retail store with 5 flats at first floor level, car parking and service layby. Site: 42 - 46 New Road Tadley Hampshire RG26 3AL

 

The Committee considered the report set out on pages 61 to 89 of the agenda together with the further material set out on the addendum sheet and other matters discussed at the meeting. 

 

The Committee discussed the proposed application at length.

 

Members were supportive of the proposed retirement apartments that would benefit the local area in terms of the potential for downsizing which could release properties and the overall increase of housing in a normally restrictive location due to the emergency plan. 

 

The main concern expressed was the inclusion of the retail store, as most Members believed it to be an unnecessary provision and could have a detrimental impact to the community and local shop.

 

Members considered the use of the layby for the delivery vehicles to the store and there could be potential issues to highway safety.  In addition it was felt that the parking provision was inadequate for the proposed scheme and concern was raised with the allocation of only one accessible parking space.

 

It was acknowledged that a Section 106 agreement was being progressed for the provision of affordable housing off-site.  However, some Members were not satisfied and requested that the application be deferred to re-evaluate the proposal to provide an on-site contribution.

 

In conclusion the Committee agreed to defer the application for the applicant to reassess the parking provision and the onsite contribution for affordable housing.

 

RESOLVED that:  the application be DEFFERRED for the applicant to reconsider the potential for on-site affordable housing provision, the operation of the layby at the front of the site and the provision of accessible parking spaces.
